Rising along Buffalo Bayou, East River is channeling the city's energy and spirit into a mixed-use development just minutes from downtown. Exceeding 60 city blocks (150 acres), East River is Houston's largest redevelopment site in the urban core. Situated with two historic neighborhoods, the Historic Fifth Ward and Second Ward, East River reconnects the urban fabric to over 6,000 feet of water frontage along Buffalo Bayou.
Phase I of the project began construction in September 2021. The first phase of East River will include 360-unit apartment complex, The Laura, 110,000 square feet of retail, 250,000 square feet of office space, 3 acres of parks and greenspace, and will be connected to new hike and bike trails along Buffalo Bayou.
Phase I will deliver in 2023.
